Terps' Friedgen to continue as offensive coordinator

February 21, 2007|By Heather A. Dinich

Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen will resume his role as offensive coordinator for the 2007 season, a school spokesman confirmed yesterday.

NCAA rules prohibit football staffs from having more than nine assistants, and because Friedgen hired Kevin Lempa to replace former secondary coach Tim Banks, who left to become defensive coordinator at Central Michigan, there are no vacancies left on staff.

Friedgen doubled as head coach and called the offensive plays in last year's 9-4 season. Under his direction, the Terps finished no lower than sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense (314.2 yards per game), rushing offense (131.2) and passing offense (183.1).
